Where's mum...??

"Where'd Mum go? She just took off and left me in here... Still, it's better than being out there getting my paws wet!"

Autumn through the window...

When it's raining outside it's nice to be inside looking out........

Papillon...............a wee cutie!

This wee cutie was having his walk on the back beach when I took my walk today. Well actually, he wasn't doing much walking. He had this fun game that involved running around at high speed in big circles, stopping for a breather, chasing his walking mate (another, older, Papillon dog) then starting it all over again. Hugely entertaiing to watch :) Clearly at his age (4 months) he had energy to burn - I bet he sleeps well tonight!

Papillon Ears

OK - so the framing's not up to much, the focus isn't even close, but check out those EARS!!!! Wow!

Tahunanui Back Beach

This is my second reject Blip-pic.. There seemed to be quite a bit going on when I went for a walk tonight but I don't think I did a good job in capturing it. This fisherman seemed much more contented with HIS evening on the beach!!

Fred Slocombe............

This picture is a photo of a picture I have at home. When I saw mojopin8's photo of a wood near her home I felt quite spooked - it was like I'd been there before............

Sundown over Tasman Bay

This is Tasman Bay, at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. This evening was such a beautiful, still evening and I decided to get up somewhere high (ish!) to try to capture the sunset over the bay and Tahunanui/Stoke. The greenish lights to the right of the picture is the airport - the red lights to the middle/left are the runway.

Crystal Butterfly

It took a long time to be able to capture the light at just the right angle so the rainbow kind of explodes into the picture. I was pretty pleased with these two though so I guess the time and effort was worth it.

The colourful still or the wonky knocker...??

This is the front door entrance to the Anchor Shipping and Foundry Company Building where 26000 have moved to produce their vodka. The colourful still won out for the Blipspot but I still feel the wonky knocker deserves a viewing. I found it pretty odd really - what place does Tutankhamun have on the door of a Nelson, New Zealand distillery!??!? (And don't you think "The Wonky Knocker" would make a great English pub name?!?!)

Cicada casing on leaf

This was the actual casing but once I'd seen the effect of viewing it's shadow on the reverse of the leaf it was an easy decision to go with the BlipPic I did!!
